Director Aanand Rai is on a hunt for a voice that perfectly suits the fashionista’s 17-year-old self…in the film, of course!

Raanjhanaa?When we first heard about Sonam Kapoor’s role as a 17-year-old in Raanjhanaa, we tried hard to fit her into that image, but couldn’t. Then images of Sonam dressed in a checked pinafore and two oily plaits surfaced and we started coaxing ourselves to believe that this lady could actually pass off as a teenager.

So far so good. But while looks can be tweaked, what can one do with a voice? Nopes, we aren’t talking about Sonam’s real voice that’s going to be used for the dialogue. SK’s tone would work for that, no doubt. The issue here involves the song that, we are told, is a young-ish lady’s innocent declaration of love.

“Aanand has got a beautiful song written by Irshad Kamil about girl expressing her first love. AR Rahman has come up with a superb melody. Now the hunt is on for a ghost voice for Sonam to express the tremulous exuberance of a girl in love for the first time,” a birdie chirps.

What’s more, the director even has Lata Mangeshkar’s voice for the song Aksar koi ladki iss haal mein from Bobby as a reference. Hmmm…to find a voice like that would be really tough, no?

But if it’s about a 17-year-old, wethinks Shreya Ghoshal’s meethi awaaz might be the right choice. If not, how about eyeing any of the many new talents that our reality shows are churning out at top speed?
